Honey Harvest

I guess when you don't sell hives soon enough, you have to harvest the honey. I got 10 gallon out of 4 supers today. Had help with the extracting, but all that watching sure made me tired. Had to come home and take a nap. Totally tuckered out. :roll: :D

actually had pretty good flow, that kept gonig long enough for the bees to draw out full depth supers, and seal two full supers--got to love the beauty of those ultra white cappings, and the 55 - 60 pounds of honey per super had 2 supers). Iddee--didn't have the luxary of sweating it out watching someone else extracting--have hand crank two frame ( for the full depth frames ) dadant extractor. still nice haul. for the rest of the season unless there is a exceptional fall flow the rest is theirs.
